The bassist and youngest member of Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen has expressed his deep longing for his father and the musical genius, Eddie Van Halen, by posting a section from Eddie’s interview in which he recalled his own dad.
As you know, the son of legendary guitarist, Wolf Van Halen, has been both the first to announce his father’s death and the most devastated one by this grieving news. On October 6, 2020, Wolf took his social media pages to share a heartbreaking open letter, bidding farewell to Eddie Van Halen.
Soon after, it was revealed that Eddie passed away at the age of 65 at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica with his wife Janie Van Halen, ex-wife Valerie Bertinelli, brother Alex, and son Wolfgang by his side.
The legend died since the cancer cells had moved to his brain. Priorly, he had fought with tongue and throat cancers for years since the 2000s by receiving treatment in Germany.
The talented bassist, Wolf Van Halen, has been commemorating his father with the most special throwback posts each day since he departed this life. In addition to these black and white pictures that proved Eddie was such a great father, as well as a musician, Wolfgang has recently shared a section from his father’s appearance on a TV show.
In the video, a fan of Van Halen asks Eddie who would he want to play with from the deceased musicians. The legend thinks some time and says he’d want to jam with his father.
Had the honor of sharing the same stage with his dad more than once, Wolf Van Halen has displayed the heartwarming tradition of their family between fathers and sons through Eddie Van Halen’s picture with his dad and his own photo with Eddie. A great number of his followers have praised Eddie Van Halen’s answer in this tear-inducting video.
Here’s what the fan asks Eddie Van Halen in the video:
“My question is, of all the deceased musicians out there – they’re no longer around – could you pick one to play with? Who would that be?”
Eddie Van Halen says:
“Wow. I thought I’d jam with my father again.”
